Kurt's Corner Guest Author: Rob Lembke, XIKAR VP Engineering and Process Excellence on Crystal Humidifiers vs. 2-Way Humidity Control
XIKAR and Boveda announced our supply partnership just prior to this year's IPCPR show. We here at XIKAR HQ are very excited about this development and we welcome Boveda's 2-Way Humidity Control technology to our product line. For years, XIKAR has provided numerous ways to keep your cigars stored properly and for many people our PG-based products have been (and will continue to be) the best solution for them. In some cases, however, the XIKAR 2-Way Humidity Control will provide a precise and convenient solution that can only be achieved using Boveda's patented salt-based technology. A few situations that may be ideal for XIKAR 2-Way Humidity Control are travel cases or other containers that have air-tight seals and non-wood structures. Containers such as these hold humidity well, allowing for the precision of the 2-Way Humidity Control packs to really shine.
The addition of the XIKAR 2-Way Humidity Control products to our humidification line rounds out our offerings for consumers, giving you a wide range of choices based on your specific needs, budgets and desire for convenience.

The 84th Annual International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailer Trade Show and Convention took place this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. XIKAR is thrilled to introduce several new innovations to our product line, as well as stunning new finishes to existing fan favorites and a variety of Limited Edition Gift Sets that will be available in time for the holiday season. These products were very well received by our valued XIKAR retailers, and we are overjoyed for them to deliver to stores throughout the upcoming months and into the hands of the XIKAR Nation! The XO cutter was perhaps the most highly anticipated launch at IPCPR this year. This ultimate cutting machine's revolutionary planetary gear system and unique circular form create an instant visual intrigue, with the popular opinion, "Once you get it in your hand, you’re hooked!” The Xidris single flame lighter was another popular item at the show, sure to fast track its way into your accessory collection. This high performance inspired lighter comes in a variety of eight striking color combinations and is equipped with XIKAR’s reliable Direct Inject™ Flame Technology.
